Abstract

The spawning grounds of a cottid fish, Trachidermus fasciatus, were investigated off the mouth of the Kashima River in Ariake Bay from January to March, 1996-1999. The nests were found about 1.1-2.3 km off the mouth of the river, where the bottom salinity was 8‰-21‰ at low tides. Oyster shells were mainly found to be used as nests. A male, a pair, a male and egg clusters, a pair and egg clusters, or a female were found inside shells. The average number of guarded egg clusters per male in shells was 1.3 ± 0.4.
